I saw this on a poster at church in one of Sunday School rooms. I wanted to share this with you. It is how God is referred to in the Old Testament. Along with each one is a verse the references to that verse. These names are Hebrew. I saw this poster during our Vacation Bible School in 2012 where I was in the adult class as a student.
Names of God
- Elohim (Hebrew name for God) Genesis 1:1
- Jehovah/Yahweh/Lord (Self-Exist or God of Israel) Genesis 2:4
- El Elyon (the most high God) Genesis 14:18
- Adonai (Our Master, Lord) Genesis 15:2
- El-Olam (Everlasting God) Genesis 21:33
- Jehovah-jreh (The Lord will provide, it shall be seen) Genesis 22:14
- Jehovah-rophe (Lord who heals) Exodus 15:26
- Jehovah-nessi (Lord our banner) Exodus 17:15
- Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (Lord who sanctities) Leviticus 20:8
- Jehovah-Elohim (The Lord God) Deuteronomy 6:4
- Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord our Peace) Judges 6:4
- Jehovah-Saboth (Lord of Host) 1 Samuel 1:11
- Jehovah-rohi (Lord my Shepherd) Psalm 23:1
- Jehovah-Tsidkenu (Lord our righteous) Jeremiah 23:5
- Jehovah-Shammah (Lord is present) Exodus 48:35
It was blasphemy to say God’s name so it was only written in that time. That brings me to the point, God’s Last Name is not Damn!
There is even a Christian song with Yahweh in it. It is by Phil Wickham called At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh).
